I think I'm getting mad.
Getting addicted to my passion, and going crazy over this blog stuff...
But since morning I'm wasting time reading others' blogs (and my own as well), and twelve in the night I'm in no mood to go home...As they say great things happen at midnight, an idea struck me...to create a platform to discuss various advertisements...I've to see where all these will take me...
what's there to discuss on advertisements?
Some ads are extremely creative and needs appreciation,
Some ads spread false message to the society,
Some ads do not speak truth and do not mean what they say,
Some ads have no logic and sense in them, and fail in their objective
Some ads are just a fun to watch/see
Some are misleading and have bad intentions/hidden agenda...
So why don't we discuss them all? If there can be movie reviews why not ad reviews? Every ad campaign launched involves lots of money, creativity,marketing strategy and counter strategy. I feel people may enjoy exchanging their thoughts on various commercials... Hence a new blog has been born: http://advt-check.blogspot.com/
ಈ ಹೊಸ ಐಡಿಯಾಗೆ ಸ್ಪೂರ್ತಿ ನೂರೆ೦ಟು ಸುಳ್ಳು ಬ್ಲಾಗ್. ಈ ಬ್ಲಾಗ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ವಿವಿಧ ಪತ್ರಿಕೆಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಬರುವ ಲೇಖನದಲ್ಲಿರುವ ತಪ್ಪುಗಳನ್ನ ಹುಡುಕಿ ಅವನ್ನು ಸರಿಪಡಿಸುವ ಪ್ರಯತ್ನ ಮಾಡಲಾಗುತ್ತದೆ. (ರವಿ ಬೆಳೆಗೆರೆ ಪ್ರಕಾರ ಈ ಬ್ಗಾಗ್ ನ ಹೆಸರಿಗೆ ಸ್ಪೂರ್ತಿ ವಿಜಯ ಕರ್ನಾಟಕದಲ್ಲಿ ವಿಶ್ವೇಶ್ವರ ಭಟ್ಟರ "ನೂರೆ೦ಟು ಮಾತು" ಅ೦ಕಣ ) ಅದೇ ರೀತಿ ನಾನು ಜಾಹೀರಾತುಗಯ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಏಕೆ ಬರೆಯಬಾರದು ಎನ್ನಿಸಿತು.
I may not be able to handle this alone. I aim to create a team of fellow bloggers who wish join me in discussing different commercials. As a team member you'll be able to post at the above blog. You can take any ad you like and analyse it w.r.t parameters like creativity, truthfulness etc.
What say people? Those interested please mail/comment. I'll send invite.
Other than that, I've added couple of enhancements to my blog:
Now you can submit your email ID, and whenever I post a new post, you'll automatically get the entire post by email. I need not alert you and you need not visit my blog...Just read the content from your mailbox.
A digital clock, Google Adsense and a site visit counter have been added. It was my friend raveesh's (raveeshkumar.com/ ) idea to add a visitor counter to blog. he asked how to add it, and while exploring that came across few more free tools on internet...Making use of that...
One of my friends asked this (it was yesterday, to be precise ) morning by mail: How do you manage to write such a long posts?
Its a passion for me. Since I enjoy creative writing, as long as I have something in mind and a medium to express that, I can go on telling that. Time and length don't bother me in this one aspect.
ಈ ಕೆಳಗಿನ ಬ್ಲಾಗ್ ಗಳನ್ನ ಅನುಕೂಲವಾದಾಗ ಓದಿ. ಚೆನ್ನಾಗಿವೆ...
Came across one more interesting blog: http://nychthemeron.blogspot.com/
I don't know the owner of this blog, but found that her writings and thoughts were interesting to read. She seems to have a huge reader base and fanfare...Taking some liberty and giving publicity to that blog. Hope no one complains.
There're so many bloggers around and everyone have something to say...
ನನ್ನ Rejection Handling ಬರಹದ ಕನ್ನಡ ಅನುವಾದ ಪ್ರಕಟಿಸೋಣ ಎ೦ದು ಹೊರಟೆ. ಯಾಕೋ ಬೇರೆ ಆಲೋಚನೆಗಳು ಬ೦ದು ಆ ವಿಚಾರ ಮೂಲೆಗು೦ಪಾಯಿತು. ಆಗಾಗ ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲೂ ಬರೆಯಬೇಕು ಎ೦ದು ಮನಸ್ಸು ಹಾತೊರೆಯುತ್ತದೆ ಆದರೆ ಟೈಪಿಸಲು ಕುಳಿತರೆ ಆಲಸ್ಯ... ಏನಾದರೂ ಮಾಡಬೇಕು...
1:32 in the morning... Too much of blogging. Have some work to finish and then, if possible, go home. Friend and cousin Sandesh (http://kannadigaa.blogspot.com/ ) has sent couple of dozen forwards, have to look into them too...
Salary Day people...enjoy and have a great weekend. And happy New Month...(Six months of new year already lost...)
Note: Non Kannada people request to ignore the special character you're seeing above...
June 2007 Update: That new blog stands somewhat abandoned, as I'm finding it difficult to focus on two two blogs. I was expecting some posts from team members but appears they are also busy. I've manages a PR of 3 for this blog wish I could achieve something similar to advt-check as well..
